Hawkins Range Reserve

Trailhead Information

The Ridge to Rivers partnership, led by the City of Boise, is planning to construct a 5.7-mile trail in Hawkins Range Reserve. The non-motorized, single-track trail and corresponding trailhead will be located in a unique area of the Boise Foothills that until now has not been accessible to the public.

Hawkins Range Reserve spans 393 acres of foothills property off Bogus Basin Road.

The property was protected in 2015 with the purchase of land owned by the Hawkins family, the Berry family and other properties owned by the Idaho Humane Society.

Public and partner agency engagement efforts began in 2017 and included federal and state environmental review, open houses, online surveys, and virtual events. The feedback demonstrated in responses from the community and our Ridge to Rivers partner agencies approve of a plan to build an approximately 6-mile trail loop and adjacent trailhead. Additionally, the reserve will be subject to seasonal closures to ensure the protection of critical wildlife habitat. We hope to open this beautiful reserve for public access in 2022.
